Using the Self in Psychotherapy:

A 2-day study group on the relational approach

Led by Dr Aaron Balick

Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 April 2019 - Dublin

Who are you as a psychotherapist and how does your subjectivity affect your practice? Whatever your clinical background or theoretical modality, it is your "personal factors" that are most likely to have an effect on your clients - and their personal factors that will equally have an effect on you. Overall, it is the relationship between the two of you that counts. Relational Psychoanalysis offers a way to understand this complex relationship, so you can begin to get a handle on the unconscious dynamics that infuse the therapeutic situation.

This workshop will address some of the major themes of Relational Theory, enabling you to think more intersubjectively about your practice. Across the weekend you will be offered a theoretical frame, clinical examples, practical tools to draw on for practice, and time for reflection on your clinical practice. The workshop is open to both trainees and experienced clinicians who wish to increase their knowledge and experience in relational practice.
